    Tasty drink!  -  15 Feb 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is certainly tastey, but not exactly how it is made in PerĂº. While living there I've always seen it made with Pisco, I don't remember whether it was lemon or lime, sugar, and blended with egg whites to make the foam on top. plus a tiny spot of bitters on top.  -  05 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
